Introducing a basic relationship between force and form in the association between social movement and culture, several concepts and typological orders are put forth in order to analyze history and social life. Social movement makes culture and culture makes social movement. This dialectics is the center of social life. Within this framework, things are brought to an end with a reading of the situation, antecedents and prospective of culture and of ethnic movements. The case thus outlined is that of Mexico, national culture, and the greater framework of regional cultures.
